$800... meh, I think I'll just stick to my simple free calorie counter.

Thank you. Because that's what it all boils down to. Being bought & sold for votes, money or power. Same situation with the FDA being bought by the drug companies, the USDA being bought by the big meat packing conglomerates, etc, etc. America is getting fatter & sicker by the year but those guys are livin the life.
And the band played on...

Ya get watcha pay for! The 800.00 version is for professionals that use it to help other folks. Just counting calories is really not enough. You would ever know if you have a vit.C deficiency or iron overload in your diet...for example. How are you doing on Omega 3,6 and 9 from a ratio standpoint? I would not expect very many people to drop that kind of coin for a household software, however, you can spend a fraction of that and let me do it for you on a monthly basis. Like most things it would pay for itself in the long run, but I certainly make a living from it.

I'm reluctant to admit it, but it's true.

When I originally stopped eating meat, it was simply because my girlfriend at the time was a veg. Three years later we broke up, and one of the first things I did was look for barbecued pork ribs, which had been my definition of heaven before.

I nearly puked, and almost immediately (in other words, it wasn't because the meat was bad). Either I had completely lost the ability to process meat, or something psychologically prevented me from enjoying the ribs. All meat tastes like feces to me now.

There are ups and downs to it. Some veggies (and of course all fruits) are better for you raw, but some are better for you nutritionally when cooked, like tomatoes. Lycopene becomes more absorbent for your body when tomatoes are cooked.

Children, pregnant and nursing mothers, anemics and people at risk for osteoporosis should not eat a raw diet. Nutritional deficiencies such as calcium, iron, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and calories may occur. Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to anemia and neurological problems. Vit B12 can be found in animal products (and obviously it's unhealthy to eat raw animal food products, outside of sushi).

Obviously you can take vitamins to make up for some of what you're not getting in your food, but most vitamins and supplement pills do not absorb into the body the same way that they do from food.

My friend is the same way. She stopped eating most meats mainly because she just didn't like the taste of most and then became a full on vegetarian. Even the smell of cooking meat makes her nauseas now.

She has to take heavy iron supplements now though because she got to the point where her blood was so iron deficient that is was closer to pink than red.

Myself, I don't think I could ever stop eating meat lol. I love chicken, steak and seafood WAY too much!

It's all a conspiracy. Big Sugar Beet is trying to take out Big Corn. True story.
